this morning to a couple of republicans who said some things, [inaudible] mitch mcconnell and leadership could not push for enough amendments for votes on amendments like marriage or repealing health care or guns. republicans will push hard. >> how about six weeks on contraception in the highway bill. is that a pretty good start? do you remember that? >> it looks like there are motions to proceed. do you have any changes -- plans to change the filibuster? >> you ask the question, i am answering it. the rules have been abused and we're going to work to change them. a're going to make the senate meaningful place and we will make it so we can get things done so people who want boats on what you mentioned, six marriage and abortion, the american people are interested in doing something about the staggering debt we have. the election was pretty clear in a number of ways. the president campaigned around the country saying we know what the problems are. we just need some revenue. that was the issue. the mandate was, look at the exit polls and the polling. the vast majority of the american people, ric
creation. and the report came out like maybe a year or so ago, and mitch mcconnell buried it. he didn't want that information known. so the news report is out there. the report's out there. i'm sure you can find it. but mitch mcconnell was the one that buried it and didn't want that publicly known that it's a fallacy. and i want to ask, especially you, mr. representative, the last two years since you people have taken over, you barely have showed up for work, we're paying your salary. i don't see any of you, not one of you putting any skin in this game. you're sitting there. you don't even show up for work for half of the two years you've taken over. we're paying your salary. we're paying your benefits. i don't see you putting any skin in the game. now you talk about my husband has been a seal worker, going into 37 years now. he's got to work about 60 to 80 hours a week to stay in the middle class. he paid in this notion of the 47% don't pay taxes and this notion of entitlement, that word -- my husband has been paying into his benefits for 40 years. and so don't you sit there and tell
for the election season. mitch mcconnell meeting with the new republican senator in that body, democrats and republicans returning to capitol hill and on friday the big meeting, president obama, congressional leaders start talking fiscal cliff. cheryl: they need to get going. thank you, live at the white house. dennis: labor leaders love president obama but can he bring business leaders in? we meet with ceos tomorrow and trying to get republicans to compromise. republican senator and minority whip roger wicker of mississippi joins us from the capital. president obama says his reelection means we will tax the rich. democrats, republicans say they are old and the house meaning we won't raise taxes on any one. are you two side going to blow this and what let happen? >> i hope not. there is room for compromise. but i don't think labor leaders are going to get everything they want today. it is an election celebration but the voters in their wisdom have given us divided government again. democratic president, democratic senate and republican house and republican speaker. there's going have to
boehner and mitch mcconnell will say no increase in tax rate, 35% is it. i think the president will concede on that point. i think bainer and mcconnell will then accept the idea of cutting culling or capping the deductions each individual and the higher brackets can take, set a top limit on the deductions they can take and that will increase the revenue flow into the federal government. at the same time, the two congressmen, republicans, preserve the rates argument. they won't make all of their folks happy, but i think that's the deal in the works. >> greta: a couple of problems. number 1 is, the fact that -- today at least, i am always stunned when -- with the exception of senator tom coburn, i barely hear anyone talking about the tremendous amount of waste and fraud. we put up the example of the guy in the bathtub with the wine glass, which is a tiny, tiny bit, but it's representative of the mind-set here. no waste and frawpd fraud. they won't raise the tax rates, but when you do put caps on deductions, you are raising the effective rate. i mean, i guess they get -- i mean, i
and then the new congress will have to fix it. mitch mcconnell will head up the republican side and he's very clear about taxes. one issue i never have been conflicted about was taxings. i wasn't sent to congress to raise taxs and this election doesn't change my principles it is clear if the president of the united states want to get something done he has to do it with no new taxings. read the republicans new lips. no new you whan? >> by the way. the president has more incentive to not rae taxes. the nonpartisan congressional budget said tax hikes with the spending cuts would the count rope back in a recession and they predict unemployment would increase to 9.1 percent. if there is any inducement to get it done. it is the cbo. >> brian: people forget tax cuts are involved and not just budget cuts. take a look at surveillance pictures. f.b.i. accounts this is it. ak 47 bandit that struck this time in idaho. he used assault rifle and ordered employees in to the vault and then made off with cash. he is wanted for robbing banks in california and washington. one of those robberies an officer was shot. a
? [booing] >> next. next. you ask that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> you, mr. hoyer, mr. clyburn, you are all over 70. does it prohibit younger leadership from moving forward? >> so you're suggesting that everybody step aside? >> i'm saying it delays younger leadership. >> i think what you'll see -- let's for a moment honor it as a legitimate question. although it's quite offensive. the fact is -- the fact is is that everything that i have done in my almost -- i guess decade now of leadership, is to elect younger and newer people to the congress. in my own personal experience, it was very important for me to elect young women. i came to congress when my youngest child, alexandra, was a senior in high school, practically on her way to college. i knew that my male colleagues had come when they were 30. they had a jump on me because they didn't have -- i did what i wanted to do. i was blessed to have that opportunity to sequentially raise my family and come to congress. i wanted women to be here in greater numbers at an earlier age so that their seniority will start to count much so
raising tax rates and some don't. >> spoke with the minority leader in the senate mitch mcconnell and he said we're willing to fix the tax rate, close the loopholes but i don't think they will bargain on raising the rates. i think they honestly believe and i agree that raising tax rates on capital gains will hurt the economy. but there's another side which is the spending side and there are some republicans who say look if the democrats and president obama won't negotiate well let's just do these automatic across the board spending cuts may be the only way we can get democrats to cut the budget. >> some out there in the financial markets they say look we need to cut four times more than the president is proposing under his $4 trillion plan. i'm curious your take why the president has been silent. i guess this is strategic. boehner gave an interview a press conference. he's giving a press conference tomorrow. earlier cnn was told the president won't say anything but tonight we heard he'll make a statement tomorrow. >> the election was two days ago. today is thursday. he'll make a statemen
not focus as boehner says we have to as mitch mcconnell says we have to, to lower taxes and get more growth and you actually net more additional revenue, i'm for additional revenue not for tax increases, neither has boehner suggested. >> alisyn: well, he didn't talk about the loopholes being closed right there. >> dave: well, he said additional revenue that's the only way to get. >> alisyn: he's saying you get additional revenue when you take off the shackles of businesses when he they have lower tax rate. is he saying there will be increased revenue. >> mike: through growth. . >> dave: that's a very, very different argument. >> mike: changing tax codes and entitlement of reform, you can't get that before december 31st. >> dave: not a chance. they'll do a short-term deal and we're going to sort through this with chris wallace, he's next, today on fox news sunday he has a member of the house and senate's democrat and republican, so, the four of them should be able to come to the compromise, today on fox news sunday. >> alisyn: there you go. >> dave: he'll solve it. >> alisyn: that's right. m
to mitch mcconnell. >> mr. hoyer, -- your all, does this prohibit younger leadership from moving forward? >> be what everyone to step aside? >> does this delay younger leadership from moving forward? >> let's for a moment honor that as a legitimate question. [laughter] although it is quite offensive, but you do not realize it, i guess. the fact is that everything i have done in my almost decade now of leadership is to elect younker and new were people to the congress. -- e. under and new work people to the congress. it was very -- younger and newer people to the congress. i came to the congress when my youngest child was a senior in high school. i knew my male colleagues came when they were 30. they had a jump on me because they did not have -- i did what i wanted to do. i was blessed to have that opportunity to sequentially raise my family and then come to congress. but i wanted women to be here in greater numbers at an earlier age so that their seniority what starts to account much sooner. -- would start to account much sooner. we wanted to keep bringing in younger people. the decision
. the president said that -- i guess he was going to walk mitch mcconnell's dog or wash john boehner's car in terms of going to capitol hill during the election, in terms of getting it done. the president, legislative leaders, and the american people, the voters are trying to figure this out. how do we compromise? can compromise be tempered by conscience? should first principles be given up for second chances? where do we go? do we say okay, tax the rich but don't put in political supreme court justices? do we say okay, yeah, we're going to do global warming, but at the same time we're not going to do the deficit the way the president wants to have it done? do people walk away from what they believe in the hope of bringing this country together? i think in the end not. i think what people have to walk away from is pride and ego and i'm referring to those same political leaders that you referred to at the beginning of the segment. if they walk away from their pride, they walk away from their ego and say, i'm going to think about gretchen carlson, and think about people in indiana. i'm going
, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. martha: virginia governor bob mcdonnell reacting to the election loss saying the republican party must find a way to better solve their core political message and the delivery. here it is. >> the outrage to newer, voters, minority voters, bret, we got pretty well clobbered across the board. i believe our conservative ideas are better for all those groups, all those people. we have to be more effective. i think our message is better. when young people looking crushing national debt, not being able to get a job when they get out of college i think our message resonates we have to be more effective getting to them early. martha: governor mcdonnell adds he is disappointed by romney's loss in his state, eight out of the 11 congressional seats for the republican team were won in the state of virginia. bill: here we go on a fox news alert. weekly jobless claims. it is thursday morning. number of americans seeking unemployment benefits dropped 8,000. 355 is the number. 355,000 filing for first time unemployment claims. labor department warns the figures we
to note. one serious, one not-so-serious. here at cnbc in the business world we're parsing mitch mcconnell and john boehner like you guys are to see what realistic possibility there is to get some sort of deal, whether it will be in the lame duck or will continue to kick the can down the road. that's the discussion. and also i don't know what your habits are for thanksgiving. generally speaking, black friday is when people go shopping, crazy people get in line and that's when the companies turn into the black for the year. walmart is setting 8:00 p.m. as the start of their sales on thanksgiving day! >> oh, my goodness. >> that is when my kids are in bed and i sneak back into the fridge for number three helping. >> wow. 78:00 p.m. the previous day. >> brutal. >> that's awful! >> that's family time. >> hey, brian, thanks so much. we appreciate it. we'll be right back. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qual
, the number two senate republican under mitch mcconnell, saying the republican party has a brand problem and a tactical problem. and the republican national chairman, reince priebus, saying in a presentation to senate republicans yesterday that the republican party needs to do a deep dive on what did wrong. they need to look at more of a 50-state strategy like democrats had. they are going to do focus groups on the republican message. and they're going to talk to state chairmen, donors, outside groups to figure out how they can make their message more rez nant and their machine more effective. >> as mike is explaining here, the reaction to what romney said is almost more interesting than what he said. bobby jindal went on to say two points. one, we have to stop dividing the voters. we need to go after 100% of the voters and show how our policies help every voter to achieve the american dream, not just a part of the country. is this a strategic moment for the republican party, turning away from the romney years and looking ahead to '16 and understanding the reason they lost last tuesday?
that are relevant. because mitt romney's no longer relevant. go to john boehner, go to mitch mcconnell and say let's promote these policies that help poor people that help the middle class that promote jobs. that's what the president's been trying to do. that's what he's calling for in saying that the wealthy should pay their fair share. it'd be nice of some of these moderate thinkers or new thinkers like jindal actually held the republicans who are in power to task a little more instead of kicking the last guy down the road. >> you tweeted this, ana navarro, livid at romney saying obama won because offered minorities "gifts." as if he didn't alienate hispanics enough wliel running. look in mirror, mitt. >> i'm very upset about the comments mitt romney made. it shows him having sour grapes. that's not a great exit for a man who just lost. you need to look at yourself, the campaign. go and look at the film. how did you run your campaign towards hispanic, african-americans? are you satisfied with what you did? does it correlate with the amount you got? also, it's frankly offensive. i can tell you as
negotiate with speaker boehner, mitch mcconnell, or does he come in, give a set of demands and go hold a press conference? they can, i believe, hammer out -- >> same can the said on the other side, by the way. >> but if the president is willing to do it, the republicans have no choice. i mean, you can't turn down a president who just won re-election if he's sincere and willing to negotiate. >> going to take some bold initiatives which is my segue into your book, okay, because you've written this book about george washington and his bold moves to break the stalemate of the revolutionary war. so much has been written about george washington. what do you want readers to take away from this book that's new? >> well, i think particularly this morning is the launch of an american legacy book tour that calista and i are doing because she has two new children's books out for american history. the first thing is to say to people we have a long history of overcoming adversity. george washington is probably the greatest example of that, and in "victory at yorktown" you see him faced with a strate
